Nasty Silent Women Wreak Havoc at the Trylon

Pretty much every movie you can see in the Twin Cities this week.

A clip of what to expect from the Trylon’s ‘Queens of Destruction’ screening.

There's a selection of feminist silent films at the Trylon, the wrap up of the Alliance Française's classic film festival, and oodles more of good (and, well, not as as good) movies to be watched this week.
